Lindsey Marie Hanson on her beautiful customized vintage Harley, captured hitting “The Snake” near Los Angeles, CA. 
You’ve probably seen photos from “The Snake” without even realizing- it’s a 21-turn portion of Mulholland Highway just above the Rock Store. “Edwards’ Corner” is the last turn heading uphill through the snake and is rather internet famous for capturing motorcyclists outriding their bike, talent, and/or conditions.

Montgomery Motorcycles, San Clemente

Today I went up to San Onofre and San Clemente to visit my friend Justin who runs the Peanut Butter Coast blog. He’s down from Seattle with his friend Chris on a surfing adventure road trip dubbed 'The Peelgrimage'. After food, he showed me a cool motorcycle shop he had stumbled upon, Montomery Motorcycles.

San Clemente, with a small population of some 60k people, caught me off guard with the super cool vintage motorcycle shop. It’s only about an hour from San Diego, but I didn’t know of much going on there besides nice surf.

Stephanie Kniebler gets a ride on the back of her buddy Kim Kenney’s CB360 while she’s finishing her project. Taking up the back is Chantal Smith on her sportbike. They ride in a sort of riding club, a bunch of awesome motoladies called ‘the Miss-Fires’ (fb). 
I love this photo so much. We’ve got a classic smaller bike, retro full face helmet (the Gringo from Biltwell), a 3/4 helmet (probably the Biltwell Bonanza) AND a modern full face with sport bike. This is what it’s all about, people. Riding whatever you want, however you want, whenever you want!
Love motorcycles, and pay it forward! The meaning of life.

Was really cool to see a brand spankin’ new 2014 2013 Honda CB1100 (and get to sit on it and rev the engine a lil) today at Cerberus. It’s pretty cool as is, too. The 535lbs felt somewhat low centered making it not overly heavy, and had good height. Again, I’m stoked to see manufacturers bringing retro/classic motorcycles back into the mix. 
They’re chopping it up for a customer who’s going to send it overseas where they have more strict on what bikes you can bring in. The benefit of using this as a base is that it passes all their all their regulations right off the bat, and will be easier to register etc.

Oh goodness, I guess I didn’t know that Ruby Helmets has a custom/build your own helmet section. So naturally I spent a few minutes mocking up what would look oh so lovely with the Monster

Such fancy, fancy helmets.

It’s official, the Dual Sporty project has begun… I’d previously announced the base bike for the build but plans have changed for the better. This is my friend Caroline Patterson's 2001 883, and she's given me the go ahead to do with it what I wish. Above are the 'before' photos to use for comparison later… MotoLady motorcycle makeover commencing!

I’ve already removed 20+ lbs of parts, replaced the shocks with Burly Brand stilettos, swapped out to scrambler style bars etc. I’m currently working out the new tank and how it will work with the cafe racer Burly seat/tail section and locating the other parts I want to use. 

Since the Monster Project updates are still needing to be finished, don’t expect a ton of in depth posts on this build until I’m caught up on Pandora’s… but in the mean time I’ll be posting ‘live’ tidbits on the MotoLady instagram, facebook, and twitter as per usual. 

Make sure to check out my mini-shoot with Caroline and her bike
